Compartmentalizing things that you have to sort through when you are getting a divorce is important. This ensures that your ability to make decisions doesn’t become a power struggle between two competing interests.
For example, you don’t want to offer to give up assets just to get what you want for child custody. Still, there are some areas that will have some overlap. We can help you to look at things from a logical standpoint so that you might be able to make the decisions that you feel are best for your future.
You might not realize how easy it is to fall into the habit of thinking about the divorce from an emotional standpoint. When you start to allow emotions to enter the process of making decisions, you will quickly find that the decisions become much more difficult and that the situation is likely to get more stressful much faster.
We realize that you do have an emotional tie to many of the aspects of divorce. Child custody matters are usually especially emotional, for an understandable reason. Even in these cases, you need to take a step back from the situation and think about how various arrangements will actually impact your children. Just remember that your children are the focus. You can’t think about what you want or what is going to be the worst case for your ex.
As you are thinking about everything, you might have some questions come up. We can help you to answer the questions that have to do with the legal aspects of the case. Those answers might give you the information you need to make decisions.
